    is there anyway to clear the hard drive without erasing the game data. I could go get a memory stick but I'm curious if its possible to just clear what I don't want on the hard drive. I suspect there is adware on the console taking up space.

Preparing standby


Firstly dont worry about games you have bought via PSN because they can be re-downloaded once you have access back to your account.
Secondly get yourself a USB Flash Drive/ HDD and backup all your data on your PS3 onto it. That way you wont cry when all your save data is wiped :)

My memory is gone


Is your HDD gone? I don't understand what you mean about memory. Other than your HDD crashed. Get a new hard drive, and any downloads you got through PSN are automatically saved and can be recovered through account management on your PS3. All other data like photos, songs, and videos will be lost if you didn't back anything up. Good luck.

Can not create internal memory card, whenever I try I returned back to the screen that says name a internal memory card.


http://ps3explained.com/intermediate/internal-memory-cards/
Create an Internal Memory Card on the PLAYSTATION 3 system HDD as follows:

1. Navigate to [Memory Card Utility (PS/PS2)] under [Game] on the XMB.
2. Press “X” to bring up the “New Internal Memory Card” option.
3. Tell the PLAYSTATION 3 which format you want it to create. PS2 or PS1.
4. Highlight “OK” and press “X” to finish creating the memory card.

Note that you can make new saves on this card while playing PS2 or PS1 games on the PS3, but it does not allow you to transfer saves from a physical memory card to the PS3's HDD. You need the memory card adapter to do that.

Transfer data from ps3 to ps3


To do this you will need a jumpdrive or external hard drive or memory card.

DO NOT TAKE THE HDD OUT OF THE PS3, it will make you completely erase EVERYTHING that is saved on it.

It says there's not enough memory to run prototype for ps3


Did you try to reset you memory card that you are using? Sometimes even if we delete the other saved data in our memory and did not reset sometimes it didn't delete automatically that is why we need to reset it sometimes. Also try to see if your memory is enough to hadle the new game you bought.

Hey Lbromeo, The reason why you can't save Ps2 gme from Ps3 is 2 things. either 1 Ps3 has self memory and can't allow Ps2 things or 2 Your system is meesed up. If those 2 dont work, Its a mystery
